Nyla Rose comments on the state of the AEW women’s division and her lofty championship desires.
Nyla Rose made history when she became the second AEW Women's Champion by defeating Riho in February. Although she would go on to lose the title to Hikaru Shida in May at Double Or Nothing, she still stands a chance at regaining the gold and becoming the first-ever two-time champion if she can beat Shida at AEW Full Gear on November 7.
However, on The Buy-In of Full Gear another championship will be defended, the NWA Women's Championship. That title is currently held by AEW signed performer Serena Deeb and Rose says that after she's finished regaining her gold against Shida, she would like a shot at the NWA gold.
“[Serena Deeb has] elevated herself. She’s got a title…I want it. First step is Shida, next step is getting that NWA title. I’d be ‘Nyla Two Belts,'” she’d tell FanSided.
Nyla would also tackle the criticism that the division regularly receives oh, same she's proud of where the division is and that sometimes it's easier to be negative on the internet.
“The talent is there. The women have the drive and they have the passion. It’s only a matter of time. We’re just going to get out there and keep doing what we’re doing; keep grinding. We’re going to show the world and we’re going to blow them away.”
She continued, “It’s real easy for people to get online and talk down about things. The reality of it is that we had the women’s tag team tournament. It was fantastic. Negative things seem to get a lot of spotlight, so it just seems like it was magnified that way. But, the reception to that was positive. The reality is that the reception to the tag team tournament was absolutely positive. People get online and share a link and actually tune in instead of just complaining about it being on YouTube, that would make a world of difference.”
Fightful will have live play-by-play coverage of Full Gear 2020 beginning Saturday, November 7, at 7:30 p.m. Eastern.
